Social: Texas fans react to crazy ending of Cal game

Posted September 18th, 2016


California upset Texas 50-43 last Saturday night in a game that featured more than 1,000 yards of total offense. But Longhorn fans will be forever puzzled by the game’s ending.

Here’s the entire play:

On 4th-and-1 on their own 45 yard line, Cal running back Vic Enwere ran it 54 yards in an apparent touchdown to put the Bears up 13, but once replay officials took a look at the play, Enwere had dropped the football before he crossed the plane to the end zone. The ball rolled around in the end zone and was eventually picked up by Texas safety Dylan Haines. But the recovery wasn’t “immediate” according to game officials. This explanation left many fans and media members confused.
